Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2009132370A1] What is described is an elastic hinge between a temple (2) and a frame (1) of a pair of spectacles with a frame-side hinge part (3) forming a support fork (6), comprising a temple-side hinge part (4) rotatably mounted in the support fork (6) through a hinge axis (5) and comprising a U-shaped sliding piece (9) that supports the temple-side hinge part (4), said elastic hinge being guided moveably in the temple longitudinal direction in a recess (10) of a temple-side housing (11) and holding a  coil spring (15) between the two sides (14) thereof, said coil spring supported on one side at a web (16) that connects the two sides (14) of the U-shaped sliding piece (9) and on the other side at an abutment (17) that engages in a female threading (18) of the housing (11), said female threading being coaxial with respect to the coil spring (15), by way of a penetration opening (19) in the temple-side hinge part (4), said penetration opening running coaxially with respect to the coil spring (15). In order to enable a largely covered hinge arrangement, it is proposed that the frame-side hinge part (4) form an insert inserted into a laterally closed receiving pocket (7) of the frames (1) and that the frame (1) with the insert in the angled temple position releases a passage for the abutment (17), said passage being coaxial with respect to the coil spring (15).
